Tequila Sunrise?

December 31 2014, work ended way earlier than usual and when I reached my station, I saw something beautiful.

I saw the sunrise. I am a fan of both sunset and sunrise (leaning towards sunset) but for some reason, in Japan, sunrise looks way better than sunset. Oh wells. 

It reminds me of German Flag a little bit. I was like tired when I get to my station but  I was relieved when I saw the sky. 

Happy kid! 

Happy New Year everybody! I hope you all the best and hopefully we get all our shit together this year. Keep Fighting! 

What 2014 Has Been

January: As a family tradition, we went to go to Church and see a movie. The top picture is me with my sisters chilling by the bay because we were still waiting for the mall to open.

Bottom picture is at Daranak's Falls where I had a chance to experience nature. It was truly one beautiful places to visit. Will definitely revisit this place. Hopefully though that it will still be as beautiful. Cross fingers! 

February: Birth Month. This is the year I turned 22. Anyways, I visited this zoo with my cousin. And bottom picture was their display for the celebration. Festive! 

March: The month where I resigned from my job as a Medical Technologist where I worked for a little over six months. Proud moments! 

Also, the month where I celebrated my despedida party which was quite eventful because there was a fight in the mall where we're in. Not just a fight though. It involved guns! Scary shiz. 

April: The Land of the Rising Sun. Finally got reunited with my bestfriend. 

May: This is where my first work in Japan is located. It was an awesome awesome experience. Met a lot of people and are now friends with some. 

June: I don't know what to feel about this month but I guess I wouldn't be able to forget this for the rest of my life. Yes it's as gloomy as the weather and all of the things here are relevant. Sigh. 

July: I left my first job and got in the second!! Also the month that I got my iPhone 5s. 

August: The month when I decided to be on my own in this apartment. It's really scary as shiz but it's really really liberating ! 

September: I finally let go of my blog and thought of starting with this new one. I don't really know what made me but it was a calling. I just answered to it. I will not take down the blog though. For future reference. 

October: My mom visited me in Japan. We went to a lot of places but I think going to Disneyland was my favorite. We didn't go all out though although I wish we did but don't worry! There's always next time. 

November: Although conceived October, I got to see Hidemi's baby bee on November. He was so cute and yeah, I can't wait to see him grow and be a man. 

December: Although significantly different from other cities, I would like to take a moment and appreciate the lights here where I live. I mean, it's better than not having anything at all, yeah? Well this is actually my first year without having anybody to celebrate it with. I mean, I have co workers but you know, it's different. Way too different. Anyways, I know December is yet to close its chapter but I want to conclude that it has been a very wonderful year. Thank you God for all the blessings. I just can't thank you enough for all the opportunities that you presented and I promise to continue being an instrument for whatever you planned. I cannot wait to start a new year and hopefully, it would as awesome (if not more) than that of this year.

Last Month of 2014

First of all, HAPPY DECEMBER. Gah time really flies so fast. December 1st, I officially already stayed for 8 months here in Japan and counting. This is my last chance of making my 2014 great and I'm kinda pressured because I think I haven't had something eventful to really celebrate. Well not really. I have kind of done a lot this year but I'm just kind of not seeing it. Whatever. 

Pictures are irrelevant but I remember my mom saying that it looks Christmasy so there you go. I actually couldn't see her point and just half-heartedly took these pictures but on second thought, maybe a little. Looks like it snowed or something. Good point, mom. 

Oh I'm feeling really thankful!! You know why, I being the careless person that I am, forgot my phone inside the CR and a very kind Filipina co-worker found it and surrendered it to the office and whilst working, the leader asked us if one of us forgot an iPhone and I was like, damn, did I? And then alas! It was me. I was actually surprised that it was a Filipina because everyone was like, it was probably a Japanese who found it but later did I find out that it was a Filipina and like, how easy would it be for her to just send the phone to the Philippines but yeah, it was sort of a miracle. Thank you!!!  Early Christmas gift for me. 

I kind of have to end this blog with a rant though like, MOCKINGJAY'S showing date here in Japan would be on MAY 2015. Like, seriously?? I would be able to download that in effing HD early next year and I'm pretty sure I would do fine without Japanese Subtitle. It's freaking insane though. I think if they would hire two person to do the subtitle, two months would be enough at least. Like, I don't really get it. As much as I want to support the film and all that, I just can't do that right now. Anyways. It's not that I haven't seen it yet ;) but I'm just saying. I can't decide which I like more though. I think the book is more dramatic. But I like the fact that Effie Trinket is with them from the very start in the movie. That's all I can say for now. See yah! 
You can always tell me what you think by leaving a comment! :) And may the odds be ever in your favor.
